Namaskaram.

I understand about the great part of the Acharyas for the spiritual benefit of the disciples. He also prays to Perumal for the removal of materialistic obstacles for the spiritual elevation of the disciples.

Whether Acharyas (including the present Acharyas) been empowered with any special spiritual power or siddhis, though they may not be using it.

I do not know whether my query is appropriate. Neither I am suspecting about the qualities empowered to them. It just occurred to me and hence, I am posting.

It could be possible because as Krishnan Swami stated in one of his upanayasams about Acharyan’s grace ( read KanKataksham) towards an ignorant (yet to be a Bhakta) or a Bhakta for his future spiritual upliftments and enlightenment and also at right time. 

Secondly, with concern to Ashta YOga Siddhi Srimaan Nathmunigal, UyyaKondar were able to attain that Siddhi too. With concern to Different chakras in the body, certainly Yes, most of it would be highly active. In Andavan Ashramam lineage there was an Acharyan, to know more.. Swami, do read this

Ramanuja dasan swamy,

Thanks for the reference.
Whether the Acharyas will be able to know the spiritual status and the hindrance for spiritual development of the disciple, when they look at their disciples.

Srimate Ramaanujaye Namaha!

This also varies from Acharya to acharya. and also on the sincerity of the disciple.

If the disciple is sincere, Krishna will inpisre the Acharya to know about the disciple’s weakness or struggles. but if the disciple wants to remain attached (intention vs external behaviour), Krishna will not inspire the acharya to know the same.

But even if they don’t know the specific problems, those who follow their instructions to the TEE..ie with utmost shraddha and devotion, will eventually overcome those obstacles, even without identifying them like a broad spectrum antibiotic or rather a powerful immune booster which can drive away all germs even before we need to identify them.

Srimate Ramanujaye Namaha,

We cannot generalize an answer for this question. There are specific examples as listed above.

But in general, they do not have special powers invested, but they are very close to Krishna (who is the master of all mystics- yogeshwara), so just by their prayers and wishing Krishna will accomplish it. So in that sense, indirectly they have all siddhis.

Ramanuja dasan swamy,

I thanked enpanifan swamy for his response, but not closed the thread from my side. Though he has provided his views, you can come up with your views also. I am still expecting more response. 

The response on “Whether the Acharyas will be able to know the spiritual status and the hindrance for spiritual development of the disciple, when they look at their disciples” may be provided.

This I have posted based on my previous experience in other spiritual institute. I understood, Reiki practitioners are able to see the chakras. Then, why not Acharyas. Since, we are revering them great, I wanted to know the spiritual powers of them, whatever be it can be mentioned. I know many of the Acharyas may not exhibit them openly to the world.

Jayaram swamy, namaskaram.

seeing chakra, carrying palanquin up without any person holding it, pulling out gold or ash out of thin air, and similar miracles are all within the category material powers. Not spiritual. The ashta-sidhdhis are all material powers; such powers are in the subtler plane, yet they are not spiritual powers.

Ishta- sidhdhi is one of the ashta sidhdhi where the person can get what he wishes for. For this the person must of performed corresponding level of intense austerities.

But acharyas desires to execute services for Perumal, to purify a badhdha jiva and bring him back to Perumal, and such desires are fullfilled not because he has acquired ishta-sidhdhi by austerities, but because Perumal is eager to fulfil his prayers. I can think of so many contemporary achayas as examples for this.

Namaskaram,

I do not intend to ask about siddhis acquired for material benefits.

e.g., it is said that at the time of initiation of pancha karma, huge amount of karmas are nullified. Is it done by Acharya through some spiritual power or Perumal’s work due to Acharya’s prayer to Perumal. If Acharya does through some power, is it not necessary to look at the chakras.

I mean spiritual powers only. Or Acharya’s are not provided with any such power and work is accomplished through the prayer to Perumal only.

My understanding of this is, since acharyas are setting the example for us how to depend on Perumal completely, with full awareness that He is the controller, He is the maintainer and He is all powerful personality, the Vaishnava acharyas do not display explicit powers. They are aware of and they want us to be aware of the fact that everything is accmplished by Perumal only.

However, in some instances we have examples of vaishnava acharyas displaying such powers in service to Perumal. I have heard some stories about such events in SriRangam. (don’t remember the full details now). Once one acharya used powers to control the flood and stabilise the boat NamPerumal was taken in. And another instance of using powers to put out fire near Perumal. (memory is really vague. I am sorry).
